The Ardencote Manor is a four star Hotel situated close to the historic towns of Warwick and Stratford-upon-Avon. The Ardencote combines traditional elegance with the comforts and amenities of a modern luxury Hotel. Set in 83 acres of landscaped gardens overlooking the Warwickshire countryside, the Hotel offers tastefully appointed accommodation, superb cuisine and unrivalled opportunities for you to create the day of your dreams.
When planning your special day at the Ardencote Manor Hotel you may choose from two stunning venues, The Manor House and The Lakeside. Each building offers you something unique.
Wedding Pavilion and Island
The Lakeside offers a choice of venues for the Civil Ceremony. The Wedding Pavilion is a magnificent setting, where the traditional elegance of an English Countryside Wedding combines effortlessly with the tranquil, relaxing waterside Wedding Island. The Wedding Island is available for Civil Ceremonies from 1 April to 31st October, has its own fully amplified PA system and is a truly original setting in which to exchange your vows.
Your guests will be greeted by the Master of Ceremonies and directed to the Wedding Island, which is licensed to hold 150 guests. The avenue of wild cherry trees and 'East Coast' style seating provide a sweeping Aisle for the Bride to be escorted to the Wedding Pavilion where the Ceremony is performed.
The Arden Suite
The Bride will be escorted along the red carpet Aisle to be met by her husband-to-be in the glamorous setting of the Arden Turret. There is no finer venue in which to perform the Ceremony, with the lakeside flora and fauna creating a stunning backdrop. The Arden Suite has long been renowned as one of Warwickshire's premier Civil Ceremony venues and continues to be a jewel in the Hotel's crown.
The Master of Ceremonies will be waiting to greet you with a welcome glass of Champagne and your guests will be ushered into the Claverdon Suite where the Drinks Reception will commence. Your guests will be served their arrival drink and invited to make their way to the glorious surroundings of the Arden Terrace where they will be able to take in the relaxing ambience of the Lakeside setting.Alternatively, the Drinks Reception can be held on the Wedding Island: yourselves and your guests will be greeted by the Master of Ceremonies and escorted directly to the Island to enjoy a glass of Bucks Fizz. The Island is an idyllic setting in which to capture the enjoyment of the day, as well as providing an inspirational setting for the photos.
At the allotted time the Master of Ceremonies will invite your guests to take their seats in the Arden Suite and everyone will welcome the Bride and Groom as you make your way to the Top Table. The Wedding Breakfast will then be served to your guests, traditionally followed by the cutting of the cake and then speeches. Once the speeches have been performed the Master of Ceremonies will invite all guests to retire to the Claverdon Suite in advance of the Evening Reception. The Arden Suite and adjoining terraces provide a perfect setting for your evening celebrations with the Claverdon Suite Bar close by to quench your guests' thirst.
